So given our cars are 40+ years or so old now, these old switches and levers are worn out and hard to find for a reasonable price. Even if you do find one restored.. it is still using old technology. Almost every aspect of our cars now has some form or another of modernized upgrades. From headlights to suspension, you can upgrade your Z to be more modern... but the steering column switches! I think it's time we start looking into finding a replacement or design a new one ourselves. I'm going to start taking measurements of the column and see if it's possible to make a new switch system. I have a 50x50 cnc router that I made long ago, and can probably use that to make new parts. (I currently need to retrieve it from storage tho as I recently moved..) Either make new parts using modern switch technology, or find a replacement steering column switch from another car that could be adapted with a bit of wiring. Lets discuss what options we have and see if we can all make the Z a better car than it is!
